Christ’s next of kin are gathered in an imaginary medieval church. The term for such a scene derives from the word for a blood relation. At left, the Virgin (in blue) is seated with Jesus on her lap beside her mother, Anne. Behind them stand their husbands, Joachim and Joseph. At right sits Mary’s cousin Elizabeth with her son, John the Baptist.
